I took in two hot bands last Saturday evening on the back porch stage of the Huntsville Museum of Art.
Next, was a 10-piece group called The Suffers from Houston, Texas, who played tight, brassy, drum-driven R&B funk that they call Gulf Coast Soul. It's fun, fast, and seductive, especially lead singer Kam Franklin who has a bright future with or without her high-powered band.
And to top off the entire weekend, even though there were a few sprinkles now and then, it never really rained. Which, of course, may be the first time in recent memory when there wasn't the traditional Panoply washout.
